Thiem searching for secret of success against Djokovic

Security officers check visitors before entering the Roland Garros stadium at tthe French Open tennis tournament Sunday

A win over the red hot Thiem en route to winning his first Grand Slam of the year could be the turning point for Djokovic, who many feels has lost his hunger for victory this year.

Nine-time champion Rafael Nadal surged into the French Open quarterfinals for a record-equalling 11th time on Sunday, while reigning women's title-holder Garbine Muguruza crashed out in the last 16. Thiem is known for his relentless attack and powerful baseline shots and will likely push Djokovic to the limit on Tuesday.

The youngest player left in the draw, 19-year-old Latvian Jelena Ostapenko, faces 11th seed Caroline Wozniacki, who has reached the Paris quarter-finals for the first time since 2010.

While the pair has met five times in their history, with Djokovic winning all of them, it was the semi-finals past year which the former world no.1 can use to his advantage. I'm sure he's going to be as motivated as ever, so I expect him to come out and really play his best. "Now I have a day to rest and get ready".

"As for Thiem, he is one of the outside favorites to win the competition, not counting three of the big four now playing in the Grand Slam. I will talk to my coach, to my team. I played finals in Madrid before, and then already in the first two matches of Rome I felt that somehow, I'm getting more and emptier".

"I just think that they sometimes should be a little bit more respectful", she added, as Mladenovic thrived on the partisan support. Against Rafa, I played with the last percents I had. So I don't think about the (Djokovic) match too much.

Fourteen-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal displayed a commanding performance as he thrashed his fellow countryman Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain in straight sets to book his place in the quarter-finals of the French Open here on Sunday.
